Short Introduction:

The Ishavasya Upanishad (or simply Isha) is one of the shortest of its kind, and basically represents a brief philosophical poem discussing the soul/self (Atman). This edition contains the Kanva recension, consisting of 18 verses.

The words “Isha vasyam” literally translates to “enveloped by the Lord” and refers to the theory of soul (Atman); a concept used in both dualism and non-dualism. This book however, including the commentary of Shankara, focuses on non-dualism (advaita).

The title in IAST is: Īśāvāsya Upaniṣad, Śaṅkara Bhāṣya.
In Devanagari: ईशावास्य उपनिषद्, शङ्कर भाष्य

This English translation includes original Sanskrit text and the transliterated roman text in IAST format.
